My fiancée had her birthday here in 2014, but we hadn't been back to Symposium until a couple of weeks ago.

Things haven't changed; the food is still great, the prices still lukewarm, the service still fantastic and the chairs still awful (GET SOME ARM RESTS!!!!).

Entrées are delicious, but I still think that Symposium is best as a dessert/after-dinner spot, as they have some fantastic selections of crepes and waffles, as well as cakes, specialty teas and coffees.

Service is always superb, prices are middling and the chairs truly are awful. Comfortable at first, but no arm rests is killer.

First time to this establishment and will return. Dropped in on a Sunday between 4-5:30 and ordered from the "Special Menu". Meals arrived promptly and the food was very good.Our server was excellent and was attentive to our needs. He was an outstanding ambassador for this restaurant.
One area of improvement would be with the chairs. Too low and uncomfortable.

My wife and I were travelling back to Niagara and decided to give the Symposium Cafe in Vaughn a try for lunch. What a disappointment!!! Her Pad Thai was swimming in a sauce which obviously came out of a jar and was terrible. My chicken parmajan included an over cooked dry piece of chicken.....tasteless and below standard.
The restaurant needs a new chef.

Had a great night out with my family at this location. Friendly, welcoming host seated us right away to a great table.

Our meals took a bit longer than usual to arrive - the only blip with our experience. Ordered steak, fish and pasta. Everything was perfectly cooked.

Always good, very consistent all around. Today I'm here for a business meeting and that works great too.
